A new year means new beginnings for Emmure guitarist Joshua Travis. Announcing his recent signing to SharpTone Records, the former Glass Cloud and The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza member unveils today the first piece of his forthcoming solo project, via debut single ‘Web of Lies‘. Check it out and download it for airplay now:
Featuring Monuments frontman Anzy Cizek on vocals and guitarist Stephen Taranto ripping an almost minute-long solo, ‘Web of Lies‘ surges with a palpable electricity. Glowing red hot with ferocious riffs, pummeling intensity, and spine twisting lyricism, the powerful track showcases the creative force of three different artistic worlds colliding into one shared vision. And, after tracking drums, bass, and guitar himself, Travis was delighted with the layers and emotion each individual brought to the mix.
“I always get so stoked when I get to work with Andy,” he notes of the collaboration. “Along with being a great friend, he is such an outstanding lyricist and performer. Just listen to him… living version of pure RAGE. Stephen is the secret weapon on this track. Imagine picking up a guitar, and making it sound like this… Blessed by a virtuoso!”
‘Web of Lies‘ is accompanied by a stunning visualizer, which you can watch below:
